QD Steering Wheel

Is there any possible way to make the zhp steering wheel QD and have the airbag and/or buttons still work? If not, are there any QD zhp wheels without any buttons or airbag?

While I don't have a definitive answer, as someone who has designed and sold QD hubs for racing, I feel compelled to ask why you need a QD wheel? I don't see the need in a road car. In a race car, the seating environment is tight and often the seat does not move. When you need to get out of the car in a hurry (accident, or worse, fire) a QD is imperative. In a road car you don't have to climb over a cage, you typically can move the seat, even after a crash. There is just a LOT more room.

I agree that a QD wheel is not needed in a road car. Honestly, I just want to be able to take the wheel off. I want to be able to put it on my desk, or carry it with me in a backpack. I just like it, there's no other reason.
